Understanding the shallow geohazards that affect the UK and how best to reduce their risks to society. Landslides, National Landslide Database, flooding, ground shrinkage, caves and soluble rocks, National Karst Database, subsidence, new technologies for hazard reduction.
Characterising UK rock and soil formations in terms of their lithological and engineering properties.
3D characterisation of the ground beneath towns and cities and its interaction with utilities, infrastructure and people. Applied research includes 3D geological modelling of the shallow subsurface including artificial ground, infiltration for sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) and impacts of land use.
